Mission Trip to Maryland

Posted by Spalding Hurst

May 10, 2024

This coming week, a dedicated team of six SCN Lay Mission Volunteers will head to Maryland for a collaborative mission with St. Mary Ryken students. Their efforts will be centered around the “Building Bridges” initiative, a vital resource for local students facing challenges at home. This center offers tutoring and mentoring and provides a safe space where these young individuals can form meaningful connections with Ryken students, akin to siblings, thus promoting their academic and social development.

As “Building Bridges” expands, there are new areas in need of painting and various minor repairs. Our enthusiastic volunteers are ready to lend their skills to ensure the center continues to be a beacon of support and growth. Throughout their mission, the volunteers will reside at the scenic Camp Maria, ensuring they have a peaceful retreat after their daily endeavors. We ask for your prayers for their safe travel to and from Maryland and for their safety while on-site.

Stay tuned for updates on their journey and the impacts of their hard work!
